In the February 2010 issue, the article “Impact of pulse oximetry surveillance on rescue events and intensive care unit transfers: A before-and-after concurrence study” (Taenzer AH, Pyke JB, McGrath SP, Blike GT: Anesthesiology 2010; 112:282–7. doi: 10.1097/ALN.0b013e3181ca7a9b) contains an error in the denominator label for rates of rescue events presented. The correct denominator label is patient days, not discharges. This error does not alter the findings of the study. Clarification of the terminology, however, will allow other organizations implementing the same or similar technology to improve understanding of their comparative performance.
The authors regret the error.
